Located in Sumter, SC, a city 50 miles from the capital of South Carolina and named after the American Revolutionary War hero Thomas Sumter, this 5,000 SF, freestanding building was designed to complement a recent surge of retail activity along the Broad Street corridor. Sited within a new Lowe’s parking field and adjacent to a new Walmart retail development, the project provides additional services for Sumter’s citizens and the surrounding rural communities.
With Starbucks and Aspen Dental as tenants, our design team worked closely with the developer and tenants to create a design customized to the site and setting. By combining cost-efficient materials and a fast-track design schedule, the project was completed on time and within budget. Featuring outdoor patio space, bike racks, and a drive-through lane for Starbucks, the project enlivens what could have been asphalt parking area into a welcomed, commercial revenue generator that provides much-needed employment and retail opportunities.
